What Are Outdoor Heaters?

Outdoor heaters are devices designed to heat outdoor spaces such as patios, decks, and outdoor dining areas. They are typically powered by propane, natural gas, or electricity and come in a selection of styles and sizes to suit different outdoor environments. Whether you use a hanging outdoor heater or a standing one, they produce heat through a heating element or by burning fuel, then directing that heat outward to warm the surrounding air.  

Types of Outdoor Heaters

  • Gas Patio Heater – Gas patio heaters are powered by natural gas or propane and use a burner to produce heat. Gas heaters are popular because they provide a steady heat source and are relatively easy to operate. They come in many sizes and styles, including freestanding and tabletop models.
  • Electric Patio Heater – Electric patio heaters use electricity to produce heat and typically come in either freestanding or mounted models. They are easy to use, require minimal maintenance, and are eco-friendly, as they do not produce any emissions.
  • Propane Patio Heater – Propane patio heaters are similar to gas heaters but are fueled by propane instead of natural gas. Propane heaters are popular because they can be used in areas where natural gas is unavailable. They are easy to use, portable, and come in different styles and sizes, including tabletop and freestanding models.
  • Wood-Burning Patio Heater – Wood-burning patio heaters are fueled by wood and provide a traditional, rustic look to outdoor spaces. Wood-burning heaters require more maintenance and attention than other heaters, as the wood needs to be replenished, and the ash needs to be cleaned out regularly. They come in several styles and sizes, including freestanding and tabletop models.

Benefits of Outdoor Heaters

  • Extend outdoor living season – Outdoor heaters allow you to enjoy your outdoor space for longer by providing warmth during cooler weather.
  • Comfortable outdoor experience – With an outdoor heater, you can create a comfortable and inviting atmosphere for outdoor gatherings, dinners, or parties.
  • Versatility – Outdoor heaters come in plenty of styles and sizes to suit different outdoor spaces and can be powered by gas, propane, natural gas, or electricity.
  • Cost-effective – Outdoor heaters can be more cost-effective than installing a permanent outdoor heating system, as they can be moved to different locations or stored away when not in use.
  • Eco-friendly – Many outdoor heaters are designed to be energy-efficient and produce minimal emissions, making them an eco-friendly option for heating your outdoor space.

How Many Patio Heaters Do You Need?

To determine the number of patio heaters needed, consider the size of your outdoor space, the BTU output of the heaters, and ambient temperature. A general rule is one heater for every 100 sq. ft. of space, but colder climates may require more. Also, basing heater placement on seating arrangements to ensures comfort for everyone.
